Hang in there, Martyman!

Marty’s photo of the day #2356: I apologize to Martyman fans. I’m well-aware that he’s been missing from my posts for well over a month. I’ve been so busy putting the final touches on my new book, “Time Is Irreverent,” that I just haven’t had a spare moment to set up any shots. In fact, […]

Martyman and the chicken soup mutiny

Martyman and the chicken soup mutiny

On Wednesday, my wife made me a big pot of chicken and dumpling soup, before leaving to teach weaving classes in Portland. That means it’s just the dogs, Martyman, the Republican Jesus, and me in the house until Monday. I can cook, if I have to, but I have been busy working on various projects […]

Martyman is in Puerto Rico, helping with hurricane releif efforts

Martyman is now on the ground in Puerto Rico, helping with the hurricane relief efforts. He had stowed away in the carton containing the paper towels Donald Trump tossed into the crowd. When I asked Martyman how he was able to know which roll to hide in, so he’d actually be thrown by our egomaniacal […]

Martyman takes a knee

Martyman takes a knee

Marty’s photo of the day #2323: Martyman is in his big chair, all excited to watch the Minnesota Vikings football game. And, of course, being a political action figure, he’s taken a knee, so he can protest police brutality toward blacks, during the National Anthem. I don’t have the heart to tell him that “taking […]

Martyman gets rich!

Marty’s photo of the day #2307: Martyman is all excited, because I gave him a $5,000.00 bill. “With all this money, I can impress the ladies,” he said. “Maybe I can even get a mail-order stripper-bride, just like Melania Trump! Did I say stripper? I mean ‘high-class model-bride.’” Poor Martyman is in for a letdown. […]

Martyman is back!

Martyman is back!

Marty’s photo of the day #2259: Numerous people have been requesting the return of Martyman. I apologize for his long absence, but he has even less of a social filter than Orange Temper Tantrum Man.

Martyman cleans up his act

Marty’s photo of the day #2146: If you remember where we left off yesterday, Martyman had taken a terrible fall and broken off both of his legs.

Marty’s photo of the day #2145: Oh, nooooooooooo! Martyman and I were setting up a shot this morning (it was going to be really funny), when our hero lost his grip and fell from the back of a chair and broke off both of his legs. But don’t worry fans. We can rebuild him. We […]

Marty’s photo of the day #2132: I wasn’t sure what I was going to post this morning. Then, as I looked through the photos on my hard drive, I came across this one from when we took Martyman to New Orleans. Martyman, of course, had a blast. He picked up this little dolly and danced […]

Marty’s photo of the day #2124: Oh, my God! Trump spokesperson Kellyanne Conway was right! Martyman spent all day yesterday punching different combinations of numbers on our microwave.

Marty’s photo of the day #2068: With Donald Trump’s presidency less than a week away, Martyman has decided it would be safest if he tried to blend in with the new, trendy conservative AmeriKKKa fashions.
